Tune of the Day: The Celebrated Saxon Air

arranged for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.

We were unable to track the exact origins of the melody, but we found that it had previously appeared in a 1823 collection of music titled The Melodist.
